Michael Kopech has right knee surgery

Michael Kopech underwent surgery on his right knee due to a torn meniscus.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech is expected to be ready for Spring Training and should be able to pitch with no limitations in 2023. He ends the season with 119 and 1/3 innings pitched and a 3.54 ERA.

Michael Kopech (shoulder) placed on IL

Michael Kopech has been placed on the 15-day IL with right shoulder inflammation.

Fantasy Impact

The Sox plan to see how Kopech's shoulder responds next week, but it's there is a good chance he doesn't pitch again this season. He recently returned from the IL due to a knee injury and has given up 6 ER and struck out 7 in 8.2 innings (2 starts) since then. The Sox don't have any long-term concerns, but he holds little to no value for the rest of the 2022 season.

Michael Kopech picks up the win Tuesday

Michael Kopech pitched five innings, allowing three hits, and two earned runs Tuesday. He struck out three Rockies and picked up his fifth win of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech has a 3.77 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, .200 BAA, and a 7.92 K/9 ratio in 25 games this season. The 26-year-old was recently activated on September 7th from the 15-day IL. His second start was much better than his first after returning and should return Kopech into a trusted option.

Michael Kopech allows four earned runs Wednesday

Michael Kopech pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing four hits, two walks, and four earned runs Wednesday. He struck out four Mariners and tallied a no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech was making his first start since being removed on August 22nd with a left knee strain. The 26-year-old has a 3.78 ERA, .202 BAA, and a 1.79 K/BB ratio in 24 starts this season. Kopech should be trusted moving forward, as this was likely a result of the time spent on the IL.

Michael Kopech (knee) could return Wednesday

Michael Kopech (knee) could potentially return to start Wednesday against the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech has been making good progress since suffering a left knee strain on 8/22. The Sox will make a final decision soon once Kopech meets with team trainers one more time, but manager Miguel Cairo seemed optimistic about the situation. He struggled a bit in August with a 5.24 ERA and 8.06 K/9, but he shouldn't face any major pitch restrictions and would be a solid option against the Mariners Wednesday.
